Two more finalists are in the running to become the Federal Way’s Got Talent champion.
Federal Way’s Got Talent is a monthly, summer-long competition hosted at the Federal Way Farmers Market for local singers, musicians, bands and other performers.
Each month, the top two talents from each show will be selected to compete in a final contest in September.
The winner of Federal Way’s Got Talent wins $500 and a chance to performe at the 2021 Taste of Federal Way event Sept. 25.
The last competition before the finals is from noon to 1 p.m. Aug. 7.
On July 3, seven performers took to the market stage in front of three Federal Way Arts Commission judges: Iveta Felzenberg, Karen Brugato and Kenny Byrne.
Performers included Janna Pekaar, Aimee Coronado, Dylan Yuste, Sound Celebration barbershop quartet, Fred Umayan, Zero Iaulualo and Reece Leo.
In first place was Sound Celebration with lead Bob Wilkie, tenor John Rau, bass Todd Jameson and baritone Jim Burbidge.
Dylan Yuste, 29, took second place with performances of two original songs: “Wildflower” and “Lightning.”
A Bonney Lake native and Federal Way resident, Yuste began playing piano around age 7, learned guitar at age 15 and began writing his own music a few years later.
“It was definitely surprising,” he said of his win. “There was a lot of tough competition.”
Yuste has performed in bars, coffee shops and small concert venues, but hasn’t tackled a talent competition before.
“After being in lockdown for so long, it’s nice to get out and play,” he said.
